Akashic Remembers Martin Meyers

Martin MeyersWe at Akashic were saddened to hear of the passing of Martin Meyers, author, actor, and contributor (along with his wife, Annette) to Akashic’s Manhattan Noir anthology, edited by Lawrence Block.

Martin and Annette—using the pseudonym Maan Meyers—cowrote the “Dutchman” series of historical mystery novels set in New Amsterdam and New York. Manhattan Noir features two contributions by Martin: “Why Do They Have to Hit?” by Martin, and “The Organ Grinder” by Martin and Annette (as Maan).

Joe Meyers (no releation) wrote a lovely piece about Martin and his work in light of his passing; please click here to read it in full.
